    Crystal Dynamics could have done a few things better, but an impressive campaign and a lot of fan love make the title a successful adventure in the world of Marvel that I don't want to do without.

    Marvel's Avengers could have been a much better game if Crystal Dynamics had relied more on its own strengths instead of emulating mainstream trends.

    An excellent campaign diminished by the intrusion of the game’s multiplayer elements. Some peculiar bugs and sloppy proof-reading can pull you out of the experience but enjoyable combat and an excellent take on some Marvel staples make for an overall fun but grindy core gameplay loop.

    Every looter struggles in the early days, and it would be naive think a studio that's never made a game of this type before would nail it right out of the gate. That being said, it's already in way better shape than I ever expected it to be at launch, and, most critically, the combat — particularly in multiplayer — is an absolute blast. I'm hopeful, and I'll be sticking around to see where things go from here.

    A range of technical issues are holding it back at launch, but a combination of satisfying combat and likable characters has delivered the foundation of an excellent superhero game.

    As a standalone, single player adventure, Marvel’s Avengers is a great experience that is well worth it for major fans of the Marvel universe, Movies and all. However, the majority of endgame content suffers from repetitive and uninspired missions, making the progress from vigilante to superhero a boring task. Though the promise of free post-launch content for 2 years is enticing for even the most hardcore and dedicated Marvel fans.

    Avengers is aimed at the most naive Marvel fans willing to absolve their idols of all their sins for a chance to stand next to Captain America or Iron Man — even for just a minute. So yes, fans like Kamala Khan are the perfect target audience for this sort of drivel. Ironically, she’s also the central character of the story.

Fun combat, good story, great multiplayer, diverse and interesting characters, a great progression system, and absolutely beautiful graphics. I really appreciate the detail they put into this game. It feels so new, the developers worked hard to create a very unique and intriguing experience.

    This is game isn't fully optimized right now, I experienced many crashes when messing around with the graphics settings at first. For those having trouble with this, I'd recommend setting the overall quality to high (at the start, if this doesn't run well move down to medium, etc until it works) and moving from there. I have a 1080 ti and can run this game at about 75-80 fps on high. Haven't had any issues since I did this (about 12 of gameplay)

    Also, this game does have a variable refresh rate (saw some comments below that claimed it didn't), if you turn on exclusive fullscreen, you can choose your desired refresh rate. My monitor is 75 fps max so that's what I'm at.

The combat, genuinely is really good, and fun. The story is awful, generic, and can be written by a passing fan in an afternoon. IT has a Fortnite item shop, in a sixty dollar game. The single player is dragged through the mud, as it still is heavily build as a multiplayer game. The game is not fun. Even as a multiplayer game. Do not buy this game Expand

    (Marvel Avenger's 2020)
    - 6 Hero's
    -6 area's
    -daily mission's (if not bugged)
    -2 Villains
    -no build diversity
    +Character move sets are intricate and distinctive
    +Decent length single-player campaign
    -Story and character design feel cheap
    -Combat gets messy and confusing
    -Repetitive enemies and missions
    -Tedious and cynical upgrade system

    It's a alright story but it doesn't ooze Marvel to me from what i have come from other marvel game's it doesn't feel like it has a life and it's kind of Boring..the Bug's going into earth after throwing a shield to finishing a 6 tier hive for it to crash,then no audio,then load back in and crashes again cannot even play after 2 hour's or game becomes a mess let alone lossing skin's
    - the loot system is just boring

    -Challenge Card randomly resetting
    -Fabricator eating blueprints but not giving any rewards
    -Sending items from inventory to stash randomly deletes items from both my inventory and my stash
    -Costumes and Nameplates randomly locking/deleting themselves, after they have been unlocked/bought
    -Lvl 50 characters randomly loosing skills with no way to regain the lost skill points
    -Upgrading items eating the crafting materials but not increasing gear power, but still manages to increase -cost of next upgrade
    Activating Heroic/Ultimate abilities only to have them do nothing but still go on cooldown
    Faction Level randomly resetting back to level 1 ( I was lvl 20 in both factions yesterday, got on today after work and they are both back to level 1)
    Faction Assignments not giving the rewards when completed
    Challenges and Assignments not updating, I had to kill 9 Exos before the game registered that I killed one
    Killing Taskmaster/Abomination doesn't register for completion of Villain Sector, now your stuck in a mission that won't end, restarting from checkpoint cause game to crash, when you log back in the Villain Sector mission is gone with no way to get it back
    Credits bought with real money disappearing, and customer support basically telling me to "buy more, and hope they don't get deleted"
    I realize you wanted to make this game a "live service" with all the grindy, money milking ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ that comes with it, but you can't even guarantee that we will get the specified rewards when we do your grindy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. And if we do get the rewards you can't guarantee they won't just get randomly deleted out of our inventory.
    What, exactly, is supposed to motivate me to keep playing?
    I'm tired of paying $134+ NZ for "triple-A" games only to have the devs say "Well, we may actually fix/finish the game, eventually. If you spend enough money on our micro-transaction store." And I can't be the only one that feels this way.

    Found Poor optimisation for something that hints at being so money Grubbing. Playing with a Ryzen 1700x and a 2080ti on a 1440p monitor. OnFound Poor optimisation for something that hints at being so money Grubbing. Playing with a Ryzen 1700x and a 2080ti on a 1440p monitor. On very high settings it the game ran realised well between 50-70fps until you play as hulk in a town in Utah. Frames dropped down to 15-20fps.
    Fps isn't everything though, each character has a realised decent gameplay loop but when your doing the same boring multiplayer missions in every looter shooter you get over it. For a game with such a large focus on co-op there is a whole lot of single player and if you wanted to play the campaign with a friend ever 2nd third mission your going to be doing alone.
    Then there is the monitization of the game. And Oof $30 for a skin or a takedown animation on a fortnite style market place I'll happily hold onto the game because it will be playable once the bugs are sorted but. I wouldn't class this as a AAA title from 2020. Was keen for the game just but hurt it wasn't polished.
